(Press Release) Mushkin Enhanced Memory Systems announced that its 256MB PC2700 Double-Data-Rate (DDR) memory modules have been qualified by Advanced Validation Labs (AVL) for the VIA DDR333 platform after passing AVL's strict test conditions. The DDR333 platform is the latest memory subset standard approved by JEDEC that increases memory bandwidth to 2.7GB/sec in leading PC designs. Advanced Validation Labs is a leading DRAM testing firm that provides validation expertise to technology designers and systems builders including Intel, nVidia and VIA Technologies among others. The Mushkin PC2700 DDR module is among the first to achieve qualification status for the new VIA platform. The qualification process included continuous stress tests at hot and cold temperatures as well as varying the voltages to test within the JEDEC standards. The permutations of all voltage and temperature conditions combine mechanical and electrical stress factors to put memory modules through the most rigorous of test conditions.
